Who We Are

  We are the Continuing Medical Education(CME) Committee at London Health Science Centre (LHSC) here in London, Ontario.  We are a group of dedicated individuals who are committed to providing educational opportunities for health care professionals in southwestern Ontario.  If you would like to know more about what the CME Committee does, please check out our Annual Report and Strategic Report here:  https://www.schulich.uwo.ca/paediatrics/education/continuing_medical_education_/cme_reports_.html   

The Children's Hospital Paediatric Update is an integral part of the CME Committee's Goals. We want to deliver engaging talks through enthusiastic speakers that cover an array of paediatric medical issues.  By the end of the conference, attendees will be able to: identify important medical problems in children and use up-to-date, evidence-based strategies to manage general paediatric problems.
